We went from A to B and love it. We spent 5 months in it and were still speaking at the end of our trip. I could full time if we had the opportunity. That would mean getting rid of stuff and pulling a big trailer full of hobby stuff.

One couple that I met had a tiny TT that they used for storage of things like a canopy, tools, etc and then had an extra bed for guests and/or “alone time.”

The cost of operating the B is so much better than the A. We can drive it anywhere. If I did anything else I would get one of those small C (B+?) like the View or Navion or the equivalent for more storage but could not park in our apartment’s parking lot.

Going “stealth” is easier. We did overnights in parking lots with no problems at times. I can’t even get interested in Class A. motorhomes anymore, even those luxury models.

I've seen several people pulling cargo trailers for all the "stuff" that's fun to bring along while camping (bikes, a grill, kayak, etc) and now I'm having thoughts about a mobile "She-Shed".....LOL!!

We down sized from a 40ft American Eagle to a 2006 Roadtrek with a sprinter model powered by Mercedes diesel. I am 6'3" and find sleeping to be a challenge some times but, overall very comfortable and easy to drive. Almost like a sports car.

We averaged 22 mpg on a 5000+ mile this summer.
Try them till you find one you can enjoy.

We also moved from a Class A to a Class B. We have a 2001 Roadtrek 190, which is considerably smaller than the newer Sprinter-sized rigs. For us, it's just right.

The best thing for us is the spontaneity it allows. We drive it as a second vehicle as well as RV, so it gets used all the time. No more needing reservations, as we can go anywhere, park anywhere, and stay at any sized campsite. The only caveat I've heard about so far is multiple days at one site. If you travel and want to return, you'll want to put out some type of marker to save your site.

Hope you find what you want soon!

I have a 190V '95 Dodge. there is a very active RT group on Facebook. I have 107K on mine and the garage put 5W30 Mobil 1 in by mistake 3 years ago. They offered to change it and I said I would try it to see if it ran through oil. It does not require any oil in 5000 miles and my mileage jumped to 16-17 with a 318 and driving 60-65. It is a lot smaller than my Mountain Aire was. My wife always said when I would die she would get a Roadtrek. She died 5 1/2 years ago and I got the Roadtrek. At 81 I am happy with it but still miss a large MH.


Roadtrek Versatile. Old enough to vote and drink (gas)
